I finished another new quilt this weekend, A Chicopee Triangles & Colorblock Quilt! Many thanks to those of you offered up sashing help on Thursday!! I was working on finishing up my triangle blocks, stopping to read your suggestions as they came in, agreed that the white had to go, and then I had to do some thinking. I was really torn between the Chicopee & grey and the Chicopee & aqua, yellow combo for a little while.
I loved the way the grey warmed up this collection and kept it a little masculine, but equally loved how the two solid colors brightened everything up. Curious, I decided to see how things would look if I added even more colors to the mix, with the grey as well, and I loved it!!
Seeing all those Art Gallery Pure Elements beautifully blur together with the Chicopee colors made such a pretty picture!
The back is imporv pieced together using up some of my left over triangles, to make one large triangle, combined with several more Pure Element Solids. I snapped this photo early Saturday morning, I just love these colors together with the Chicopee patchwork!
I went with 505 Spray again for the basting, and quilted when I found the chance throughout the rest of the weekend, using a colorful, Brick Red Aurifil Thread.
I was pretty nervous about how my quilting would look on all those solid fabrics that made up the back, with such an obvious thread choice, but I went for it anyways!
My binding is made of Dark Citron Pure Element, my favorite shade of green!!
I wish I wouldn't have gotten better photos of the finished front, this is my best shot!
Thankfully the back photos turned out nice. I'm really happy I went with something modern and improv for the back!
This was a really fun quilt for me to make and is my husband's new favorite! It finished measuring 50" x 56", so a nice quilt size for the couch!
I have my Applique Art quilt top all basted and ready to be finished next, just as soon as I figure out a plan for the quilting!
Wishing you all a wonderful new week! ♥, Maureen
